158 Discussion on Loving-Kindness and Attachment
/

Today we have a special chance to listen to a discussion between a young student who visited the monastery and one of the monks. This student understood the value of going to see people who know the Supreme Buddha’s teachings. And because they let us record it, we get to learn too. We’ll learn about three things called gratification, danger and escape. Gratification is the happiness we get from something. The danger is that whatever it is, it’s going to change and not give us as much happiness. And most important is the escape, The Noble Eight-fold Path that solves that danger for us.

They talk about loving kindness, so afterwards we are going to meditate by listening to some ancient verses that guide us in developing a mind full of good wishes for everyone in the world. You can either listen along silently, or click on the show notes link to download a copy or follow on line.
